Awakenings reveals new festival “Upclose” and complete line-up for

Awakenings introduces Awakenings UpClose, a new festival set in the Netherlands this summer, offering a unique two-day experience on May 18 and 19 at Houtrak, Spaarnwoude-park. This event, dubbed an “ode to the dancefloor,” focuses on dance culture rather than DJ prominence, celebrating intimacy over enormity.

Featuring techno titans, underground gems, 16 b2b sets, and over 25 debut performances, Awakenings UpClose aims for a progressive techno journey. Highlights include unprecedented b2b acts like Colin Benders x Speedy J and ROD x Stranger, alongside Joris Voorn’s hypnotic techno and hard-hitting sets from 999999999, Rebekah, and I Hate Models.
